Grocery prices in Australia have risen 43.6% since 1996, compared with consumer price index rises of 28.8%.
But fear the price of bread and butter no more!
The government is watching, standing ever alert with eyes fixated on grocery prices!
As promised during the election the Rudd government is going to "look into" grocery prices.
The government's new "inquiry into grocery prices will put greater competitive pressure on supermarkets — but don't expect prices to go down."
Pending excitement averted.
